Favourite live version so far is on 2.28.73. (DP28) Phil's vocals are almost spot on. Donna's harmonies and Jerry's playing give it a sweet and soulful flavour. There are a few good ones in 73. Comparison with the studio Box isn't fair, considering studio technology. I think Hunter's slower tempo suited the song better.

Its definitely fair to compare them. Despite the studio technology on all thirteen studio releases, only two approached something great. The Grateful Dead were best without studio technology.
Anyways I really like your suggestion. I just found that track and its probably the best live "Box of Rain" Ive heard. Thanks.
